Easter Bonnet



I remember Easter as a time for a brand new everything--from a straw hat, white gloves, new underwear, to patient leather slick bottomed shoes--and then off to church for a small Easter parade, a church service bedecked with lilies and daffodils, lots of singing, and pictures--lots of pictures--stopping at Roger Williams Park for pictures--at home in front of the forsythia bushes for pictures...

This Easter I've tried to get away with using what we have, and buying a dress from a thrift shop. My granddaughter loved the idea of decorating her blue floppy hat for Easter--the flowers and feathers are either pinned and basted on for easy removal. She picked out a deep red velvet dress that needed a few adjustments, but will do.

Happy Easter!

(imagine mom making all our dresses, and how we had to shop for new coats, shoes, petticoats, etc, then the big meal and all the baking, and the easter baskets...what pressure!!!!!! she did have gramma's help, though...

Hey Marth, I can't imagine making all those dresses and having to buy all that new stuff, plus cooking, cleaning...although Mom used to stay behind on Sundays--she didn't go to church---I can't blame her--I hope she was able to sit for a minute and drink a cuppa!

Hi Dean, Oh yes the deep red velvet!--not really an Easter material, but soft and fun to wear!
